Inflammation/Strain of Back Muscles Attachments

Anatomy

The spine is bordered by several groups of muscles: the superficial back muscles that attach to the spine but control limb movement and aid respiratory function, the intrinsic or deep back muscles (of which there are four layers) that act specifically on the spine, moving and stabilising it, and the muscles that attach anteriorly.
